Molokai Habitat for Humanity Luau
Local Talent on Display at Fundraiser
Executive Director for Molokai Habitat for Humanity Jean Han says that material donations for home building are always of great help, but that nothing, of course, is as reliable as money. “Last year we were fortunate enough to have solar panels donated for one project so that one family could keep its energy expenditures down, and we thought- wow, wouldn’t that be great for all homes?” The cost of having photovoltaic adaptors on houses is a little steep for a non-profit housing developer- roughly $11,000 for low-end materials alone and up to $50,000 for more comprehensive systems- so donated systems, which can be exchanged for tax credits, are worth their weight in gold.
Note: On June 17th all seven chapters of Habitat for Humanity in Hawaii will be undertaking their 4th annual ‘build-a-thon day’ in the Aloha State. Anyone wishing to volunteer their time and/or materials, on that day or sooner, would be greatly appreciated. Contact Molokai Habitat at 808 560-5444 or email@example.com
